THE EVENING GAZETTE: .MONDAY, FEBRUARY 20 1588. AROUND THE WORLD. That, part of fashlonnbls Paris which iwrr.T fulls to nlfoml first representations, littie drenmc'l Nor. 17 last, on the roriral of "Around the World in F.hrhty Days," ; t.hnt they wnro not qnite up to the times. ; 'Twaq really ^r,, however. That very rnornlna; the tpiji-ndnry Fog£ hod . b~?n JwntcM, onldouR nii'l thrived ns one , who h::<) outlived Ills usefulness. And by > whom? l!y a simple Parisian dnde, by our friend Ijiuls Venict, n sympathetic I boulevardior, but a person of but llttlo conseqiioncp. Kwentric Alhlnn steps down from her podoatul and another legend is i »st to the winds. This is how It hnppcneO: About thrt'i- tnnnltiD npn, in tlionmoklng inom of a cnfc on the bonlcvnrd, Ix)uls Vernet was rpmlliiK the theatrical news nn the fourth p«t?e of a newspaper. "Hellol what is this?" exclaimed he, suddenly. "Well, I declare; they are rickening with their 'Around the World la Eighty Dnysl' Why, they will soon ba trying to have tis believe it wai the thirteenth labor of Hercules!" ' "And still, sir," replied a voice with a broad English accent, that of a person unknown to Iionfa Vcrnet, "it was, most assuredly, a great feat. The best proof that It was an undertaking of some consequence ia that the amusing French writer had to make one of my countrymen the hero thnt succeeded in accomplishing it." Louis Vernet turned his head around and coolly replied: "Well, for my part, I maintain that your Phileas Fogp; was as alow as a turtle, and I would bo willing to bet that I could do better than lie I" . • "You would go around the world "Let's say seventy days, if you wish I" "I'll bet that you can't do it." "What will you wager?" "One hundred thousand" francs." Louis Vernet scratched his head. "One hundred thousand francs," said he. "I haven't that sum with me, nor at home, either, for that matter. But If you will kindly give me until to-morrow evening I shall «ee some of my friends who will probably back me up, and then I shall be yours to torn maml." The stranger bowed, handed Louis Vcr- net his curd, and the two men took leave •• of each other. This is why on Wednesday, November the 10th, Lonis Vernet gave a sigh of satisfaction as he sot foot upon the quay at Havre. He had left Paris on the 8th of. . September and he had to be back at noon 1 on the 17th of November. Ho had wasted no time in traveling, and it wius with no little anxiety that on the Oth of November, he had embarked at New York on the Marsouln. Would they reach Havre on the 10th as every one said they would! There were many chances agninst It . The least obstacle, the slightest Haw in the machinery and all; was lost. But the Marsouln upheld her reputation ns the l>est French . transatlantic steamer. At the stated hour she was moored to. the docks at Havre, having crossed the Atlantic in less than seven days. The gallant vessel, after this furious race, seemed happy to have n chance to rest, and the ertfjlnrsfittrif fntiarnert~by~l1fir -- exertions they had been making, bellowed as they blew off the Bteam, now no longer needed, while the foot bridge discharged upon the .quay a long Btream of passengers and porters carrying their baggage. Louis Vernet turned around and cast a look of gratitude upon the noble steamer. He looked- at his watch. Four o'clock I He had ample time to dine comfortably ' before taking 'the 0:40 express, which would land him in Paris at 11:80 o'clock. ., Was that right? -He looked at his time table. As he ran over the columns of figures a smile flitted across his lips. "After all, why not? What ia the use of going this evening, anyhow. It will look as if I were afraid of being behind. timel No stylo about that, old man, no •tyleatalll The chic, the pschutt, the v'lun, is to arrive as late as one can, at the lost minute, if possible. That's the way artists do, when they want to make a great hit. Now, there Is a train leaving in the morning, tit 0:55, by which I will get to tliR St. Lazaro depot at 11:110. Onr rendezvous is llxed for 13 o'clock, .in i the office of the Semaphore, just behind the exchange. From the station to the" exchange will take me but eight minutes In the first hack I come across. Therefore, there is nothing to prevent my reaching the French Semaphore office at 12 . o'clock sharp. In this way I shall have mil that an« interested In the bet on the tiptoe of expectation until the very last minute. That settles It; I will not Ht«rt until to-morrow." Louis Vernet had his trnnks token to the Crowned Dog hotel, the principal house in Havre. He dined quietly, and after his meal he smoked a good clgur while taking a walk about town. At 10 he returned to the hotel to go to bed. "Monsieur," said ho to the landlord before retiring, ."I have to leave In the morning by the 0:55 train. Will yon promise to Imvo me awakened In time?" "We have for that purpose a trusty waiter," replied the landlord. "Monsieur may sleep on 1ml li ears..-- He will not miss hi* train." "Nevertheless if you have an alarm dock you can lend ms I would feel more at ease." "Why, certainly, sir. There is but one in the— my own. You may have it." Louis Vernet : thanked the host »nd went upstairs to his room. He set the nlarm for 0 o'clock, placed the clock on \ the chiffonier near the head of his bed and slept the sleep of the just. Ho was still sound asleep whea some- iHxly shook his arm. - "Eh! sirl" "Whatf what is the matter?" "The matter Is that yon just have time." • "Time for whatf" "To reach the station," • Louis Vernet glanced at the nlarm clock. "Halt post slxl" cried he, in a voice of consternation. He sprang.from his bed "so hastily that he overturned the chiffonier, slipped OB his pantaloons, tfttrr off his nightshirt aud threw It on the floor, dressed himself in five minutes, gathered up his scattercc 1 effects In a jiffy, strapped Ms trunk, flew down the utalra, four steps at a time, leaped into' the omnibus which awaited him, and only breathed freely when he boarded the train. Phew! that was a scarel And to say that five minutes later his bet would have been lost. Frankly speaking it would have been too stupid on hla part. Anyhow, all is well that enda welL He had his ticket, hla baggage was checked, he was comfortably seated in a good compartment, the locomotive sounded Its whistle and the train moved off. Now for Paris I The steel rails clatter beneath the car wheels. The Havre train has just entered the depot. It is exactly half post elovtn.

"Let mo KO! I swear that I will return in an hour. You are making me lose one hundred thousand francs." A bitter smile flitted across the gendarme's lips, beneath his heavy mustache, lie retook posses.sion of his prisoner, with both hands this time—one on each shoul der. "Come, now," said one of the railroad employes, "playing off is useless. Acknowledge nil. You arrive from New York, with a mysterious, hurried air. That Is not natural. And (his suspicious trunk! Who are you* What are your political opinions?" Louis Vernet was Inspired. "At the lust election," replied he, "I voted for th« candidate of the Left Center, and I am a subscriber to The Debatnl" This declaration made in iv tone of sincerity produced a slight revulsion of sentiment in the traveler's favor. "Well, what does your trunk contain?" asked the gold laced employe. "Clothiug, nothing else, I assure you." "Are there 710 explosive materials In it?" "Explosive materials! • What for, I am neither a chomlst nor a pyrotechnist!" "What is that singular, then? Ah! you are silent. Well, since you will not speak, I shall answer J!o* you. There is in your trunk a machine, regulated by clockwork, which, nt a fixed hour, Is to cause an explosion. In l/ondon, the day before yesterday, the police arrested four Anarchists with similar machines. You are one of the name gan^I" Louis Vernet's eyes j.;rcw round with stupidity. He stooped over his trunk, and his eyes grew rounder still. . Tlc-tac, tic- tuc! Ah! but he must surely be dreaming now! All at once a noisy jangle resounded. The signal for the explosion to take place. it was plain. Look out for the bomb. Porters and employes scattered in every direction. The police officer himself was not left behind in the panic. Vernet, alone, heroically stood ut his .post. With a feverish hand he opened his trunk.- HIsfliigcrHrutnniMKed nlioiit under the clothing, probing, feeling and upsetting everything;—Suddenly-- he toxichcd'Tr hard substance wrapped up in his night shirt. What Is this? Limls Veruet raises his arm, brandishing—the nliirm clock of the Crowned Dog hotel, which, in his hurry, he had thrown Into the trunk anil which hail sprung its alarm six hours behind time! • "Confounded trumpery ["exclaimed he, furiously, as he dashed it to the floor. A peal of Homeric laughter burst on his ear. But the unfortunate traveler glanced i't the depot-clock. -Eight minutes to 12! With lowered head, like u wild boar ';hat had scented the dogs, ho dashed forward, rushed through the gate, leaped Into a cab and yelled to the driver: "Place do la Bourse! I'll give you a louts If we arrive before 12." Seven and one-half minutes later a cab rolling at lightning speed Issued from Notre Dame street. A man got down, rushed through a dclorway, flew up u staircase and burst like a storm into the .'•'rene.h Semaphore olllce, crying out in a tentorlau voice: "Here I null" Just at that moment the Exchange :lock sounded the first stroke of 13.

This is why, since Nov. 17 last, Phile.-i- Fogg has taken a back seat.—Translated from the French of Joseph Montet for The Times-Democrat. The Song of the Shirt. An ingenious Yankee has invented u machine which, according to the way In which It Is used, may prove a blessing or a curse. It consists of a connecting wheel and belt for hitching one of the cheap reed organs that play tunes, by means of sheets of punctured paper, to the fly wheel of a sewing machine. Thus a poor seamstress^cun do her work and play the organ at the same time. She can fit the tune to the stylo of sewing she wishes to do. If it requires care and mnst be done slowly, church music Is entirely suitable. When see hns plain, coarse sewing she can work with such tunes as "Dixie" and "Yankee Doodle." Selections- from "Pinafore" and "Tho Mikado" would not /be out of place. Fancy what it would be to go into a large dress making establishment and find thirty or forty girls at their sewing machines, each with a reed organ, playing i: different tune. Yet it may Boon occur.— Courier-Journal. The Future of Mterllng and Ktek Fall.. Editor Evening Gaz"Cte.

Patton justice when we said he had been worsted in his contest with Professor David Swing; making to us this statement, which the GAZETTE fully admits is correct: That Dr. Patton formulattd charges of heresy against Prof Swing who was brought to trial before i Chicago presbytery at the tpring fusion: the presbytery failed to sustain the charge.—DrrPtltton appealed the case to synod. At t e next meeting of the presbytery (in the following Autumn) jj'rof. Swing tendered his resignation as a member of the presbytery > which was accepted. When the synod' mot soon afterwards, iMr. Coe was a member of that body. It put tho presbytery on trail for accepting Swing's resignation pending the appeal, and decided that it had no right to accept said resignation, and Prof. Swing's name was ordered to be placed again i/n the rolls, aud then tho synod proceeded to take up the case as appealed. The charge? were sustained. As we said above, Mr, doe's statement is correct. The editor of this paper believed and belives that Patton was right and that Swing should have been condemned by the' presbytery as he afterwards was by the synod. He was not in accord with his church,—his views were utterly at variance with it, and_he had no more right in the Presbyterian church than had a Buddhist or, an agnostic. But Dr. Patton started out to condemn him in presby- tery-rnot in synod. The thought of appeal was one not considered until Swing got a verdict; in his favor, and that the presbytery thought an appeal ' was not proper, it accepted Swing's resignation, thus enabling him to appear to come off victorious. Of course Dr. Patton achieved reputation at the trial .-As the GAZETTE said when it .said he' was worsted, it gave him such prominence that It finally lodged,.him at Princeton as professor and recently as president He did have the synod to sustain him; but by the presbytery accepting Swing's resignation, and Swing not being present to defend himself before synod, It enabled him and his friends to claim and the outside world to declare that if Swing had seen tit to contest the matter in synod as he-had done in presbytery, he might iheie have been sustained. We admit, and we intended that our previous statement should convey that idea, that Patton was victorious; for his church has since honored him in the superlative; but he was worsted in that Swing carried the presbytery with him,—got it to say he was not guilty and permitted htm to go. Patton's victory lay, us stated, in his getting the synod to sustain him. Far be ic from us to reflect upon Dr. Patton. His conduct throughout that trial was of a man Insisting upon those in the church preaching those doctrlnis they had -Bolemul) agreed to preach, while Swing's was that of a man who was seeking to sow dissension by denying the accepted views of the church. We thank Mr. Coe for calling, as it gives us opportunity to explain what we really meant, which is none other than this: Patton worsted by the verdict of the outside world, was victorious according to the final action of his church, an'I his church further saw that in him manifest in this prosecution . that caused It to finally place him at the head of that great and grand old Institution, Princeton. Kef using- to accept the decree by the presbytery, he snatched what has proved victory to him out of defeat by carrying the case to the higher body. There Swing did not go; but Patton was sustained by a large vote'. YOUNG PERRY Belmonfc appears to be of the mind that foreign atlnlis is the leading business of Congress . But no country on earth ia to Independent of other countries as ours. Mr. Hal- moat should.remember thure are other conn&ltUiea lw»l(ie» uts.

A party leader will be as communicative as a village gossip when talking to his party cronies. Indeed, he goes to extremes of confidence in worda, nnd little things that astound those that are taken into the charmed circle but semi occasionally and they wonder why it should be thought that a politician is not disingenuous; but when such go back home and write letters to the voluble politician, they will learn that he is in letter-writing, what he is in public speech; unwilling to say anything. If a chap who gets inside and hears some confidences goes out and repeats It, the politician can deny it; hence his free speech. If be says his say in a letter orpublic speech, it can bo proved upon him; hence his silence. No man can succeed iu poll- tics until he can make a speech of an hour's length, or until he can write a letter of ten pages without promising anything and without committing himself to any party or to any policy. i; •„;„ c;oi lirc.'iiiii! vinaictiva '-o-wnr^ • follow man, imd lU-siroil to. punish him, we would deprive him of his hobby; wlth^ out that he would bo lorresomeln. a cro\vd7 nnd crowded In a wilderness, and would seek what he had fust nnd find It not.
